Hello guys,

I have an already replicated database in my server ,the replication has been done by some other guy not me.I backup that database and restored it on a stand alone pc on one of our stores.Now i would like to make a replication between the server database and the database in the standalone pc.I am planning to make a snapshot replication.So what are the neccesary precautions that i should take before proceeding?

One more question i would like to ask is where to have the distribution database ?whether in the server or on the stand alone pc or on both? i see a "distribution" database database along with the databases in my server as well as on the standalone pc to which it is already running replication now.Plz make me understand what it means to have distribution database on both the server and standalone pc?Whats the purpose?
